University Canada West students gathered together February 23 for a Career Talk session hosted by UCW Faculty Head Dr. Shawn Ireland. The presentation focused on internships, effective search methods and etiquette on approaching industry professionals.

“These types of Career Talks are very helpful, especially if you aren’t familiar with the Vancouver market,” explained MBA student Andrea Di Pucchio. “The way I approach career planning and professional networking in Canada is different than in my home country of Italy and I know that understanding these differences will be a great benefit for me.”

The session ran for one hour and wrapped up with an informative question and answer period.

Dr. Shawn Ireland teaches courses in UCW’s MBA, Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication programs. He is a practicing clinical psychologist who has been working in the field for nearly thirty years, applying behavioral sciences to his work.
